A 19-year-old male asked:

After an initial biopsy, with a dysplastic nevus result, is it the dermatologists discretion or lab findings that should determine further removal?

The dermatologist: uses the results from the laboratory, their personal knowledge of risk, and a discussion of the options with you to ultimately determine further treatment. If the laboratory results are back already, make a follow up appointment with your dermatologist to discuss next steps.
